History & traditions

Fluorite , or fluorite , has been known since antiquity, but in mineralogy the reference description is that proposed by Georgius Agricola in 1529.

The name fluorite comes from the Latin fluere , meaning to flow, and was given to the stone by Italian mineralogist Carlo Antonio Galeani Napione.

Fluorite has been used since antiquity: it was used to treat the metal so that it flows more easily.

The Egyptians used it to make scarabs and other carvings. It was also used to make ornamental objects in China.

It is fluorite which gave the name of the phenomenon of fluorescence because it is the first substance in which this phenomenon was observed.

Today, fluorite is very little faceted like a gemstone because it is too soft, but it is used a lot raw or polished.
